I have a '98 VW bug with less than 60,000 miles. About 6 months ago it began stalling while I was driving and now it does NOT even start. I have had everything fixed (over $2000 worth of work) EXCEPT now it will not even start. It is dead. I took it to two mechanics, the last one who is a VW “specialist” and he said he had never seen anything like this. He suspected the computer, but I can no longer deal with this. Any ideas?? Many thanks!
It would be helpful to tell us a little more about “I have had everything fixed” What exactly was “fixed?”
You should be able to read error codes from the car’s computer. One of the prior attempts should have done that. What were the results.
When you say it does not start, could you describe exactly what happens and what you hear when you try to start it. Please describe what happened when it stalled while you were driving it. (Total stall suddenly or a lot sputtering etc.?)
Did the mechanic who said he suspected the computer say why he suspected it?
